Happy Homecoming

Pederson heads home

A picturesque homecoming for a loggerhead sea turtle named "Pederson". He was sent back into the water at Juno Beach after being cared for at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center.
 
Pederson was accidentally hooked by a fisherman at the Juno Beach Fishing Pier back in September.

He arrived covered in barnacles, algae, and leeches. Two fishing hooks were removed from the turtle's esophagus and stomach.
